Première Vision is especially attached to young creative talent, and strives to put their designs in the spotlight. For this July 2018 edition, Blossom Première Vision entrusted the design of the hostesses’ outfit to Coralie Marabelle. The Première Vision team met Coralie Marabelle for the first time in 2014, when she was a finalist at the 29th Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography*.

CORALIE MARABELLE is a French “Couture-to-wear” brand that brings the energy, ease, and modernity of ready-to-wear to haute couture. Before founding the brand in 2016, Coralie Marabelle studied at Studio Berçot in Paris and worked at Hermès, Alexander McQueen and the artisanal line at Maison Margiela. In 2014, she won the Prix du Public at the Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography.
“What I love most is playing with materials, creating texture, creating volume … and the starting point of all that lies in the choice of fabrics,”
Since the creation of her brand, Coralie Marabelle has presented her first collections during the Paris Fashion Weeks, won the L’Oreal Paris Fashion Grant in March 2017, and the Grand Prix of Creation of the City of Paris in January 2018.

For Coralie Marabelle, the creative process starts from exploration. She travels, observes, meets…. always searching for a far-off culture, a folklore, the work of an artist, which turns into an obsession, a starting point to design a new collection. She works a lot with material and textures in a crafty “haute-couture” spirit inherited from her years spent working in couture houses.
*Since 2011, Première Vision Paris has been partnering with the International Festival of Fashion and Photography at Hyères, a natural pairing for two players so widely known for their support of young designers. Première Vision lends its name to the Grand Prize awarded during the Fashion Competition of the celebrated festival.
